What to do and see in Emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: The Best Places and Tips

The Emirate of Abu Dhabi (/ˌæbuː ˈdɑːbi/, /ˌɑː-/, or /-ˈdæ-/; Arabic: إمارة أبوظبي‎ Imārat Abū Ẓaby, pronounced [ʔabuː ˈðˤɑbi]), is one of seven emirates that constitute the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is the largest emirate by area (67,340 km), accounting for approximately 87 percent of the total land area of the federation. Abu Dhabi also has the largest population of the seven emirates.

The 10 Best Things to Do in Abu Dhabi, Emirate of Abu Dhabi

Atmospheric backstreets paint a very different picture to first impressions of Abu Dhabi. The often slick and modern capital of the U.A.E. presents a fascinating mixture of tradition and progression. Tracing its rich history back to around 3000 B.C., Abu Dhabi maintains a more distinctly Arabian ambiance than glitzy Dubai. Taxis are a safe, reliable way to get around sites such as The Corniche Park, the White Fort, the Heritage Village, which offers glimpses into Bedouin life, and the Women's Craft Centre.

Fast-forward in time and it’s sometimes hard to imagine that this dynamic and world-famous city was ever once just sand. Glittering skyscrapers, a 12-lane highway, the world’s biggest, fastest, best. But that’s the beauty of the city: scratch its shiny surface and the Arab heritage and hospitality is still there. Old souks, wind towers, and forts are nestled adjacent to the monuments of modernity. With 200 nationalities living and working peacefully alongside one another, Dubai is a truly global city with a huge heart.
